Review of The Riverbank - CLOSED

The Riverbank
Cuisines: British
More restaurant details
Restaurant details
Dining options: Reservations
Description: The Riverbank hotel, bistro and bar in Truro is a little local gem that newcomers to town will be delighted to discover. Tucked away just behind the cathedral on the riverbank in the centre of town, only ten minutes from the train station, this lively restaurant is a colourful and sunny place to enjoy a meal with colleagues, friends or family, and the personalised service and hearty British menu are impressive. The walls here are adorned with a rotation of local art exhibits, and the stylish setting coupled with the convenient location have made the Riverbank a much talked about Truro dining destination. The menu at the Riverbank restaurant offers everything from Sunday roasts and burgers to salads, pasta and delicious puddings.

nice variety of food. We have some fussy eaters and some odd intollerances which the staff worked around very nicely. Then we stayed to here a great band. Top night!

Great little gem and location. Bright and spacy with a homely atmosphere. Good food in which unlike wheatherspoons you do not feel rushed to eat. Definitely worth a trip.

Have stayed here a number of times before, but this place has changed hands again and is now the Barley - local 'boozer'.
Gone is the cosy atmosphere in the lounge bar, which has been replaced by standard pub seating and a pool table. Average menu, nothing to entice to eat in, no atmosphere and when i went down, no customers, ate out. Rooms were refurbished 3 years ago, have seen little maintenance since. Corridors looking shabby, rooms themselves slightly better than Premier Inn, wet room shower is really nice.
Sadly, this place is now just a 'boozer' as the place describes itself with rooms above, won't stay again despite its central location.
I will put money on this place changing hands again within 12 months. Shame.

We came here on the off chance while staying in Truro. As a coeliac eating out can be a challenge, but the waiter and chef were incredibly helpful and knoweldgeable (and said they could have, give notice, have prepared more for me). We all enjoyed the food and dessert and the restaurant had a warm ambiance which we enjoyed. We would certainly have no reservation visitng again.

Attended the riverbank for Sunday lunch. Had been before & it was lovely.
1st thing ordered drinks, my partner ordered a larger the person serving said it had just ran out would he mind waiting. 20 mins later still no larger. Partner orders a different brand. Ordered roast turkey & beef at £12 each very expensive for a roast. The roast consisted of 3 tiny roast potatoes 1 slice of meat each. A piece of stuffing as big as my thumb nail & a small serving of roasted veg. We both left hungry.
